The ship’s bell MS Goya, is another on the list of bells found by the Baltictech group. Just 10 days earlier they had located on the bottom of the Baltic Sea SS Frankfurt bell, and in the summer of 2019. They found a bell on the wreck of the Steuben.
Such things do not happen often! Only 10 days after the discovery of the bell on the wreck of the SS Frankfurt we come across the bell on the wreck of the ship Goya. A discovery all the more exceptional, as this wreck is already somewhat explored. After all, there have been many, more or less legal dives on it since its discovery in 2002. – Baltictech members informed
Undoubtedly, the above finds are extremely valuable due to their historical value. Additionally, their finding should be considered as extraordinary luck. All because many Baltic shipwrecks have simply been plundered over the years.
Hence, among other things, the activities of the Baltictech group aimed at creating photographic documentation and an inventory of individual vessels and providing them with better protection by making more wrecks available for diving. How could this improve the situation? You can read about it here in our conversation with Tomasz Stachura.
We managed to come across the bell during the wreck inventory, which we are carrying out as Baltictech (under the supervision of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk and the Maritime Office in Gdynia) in order to show the current state of the Gustloff, Goya and Steuben wrecks. – we read on Baltictech’s website
This time we focused on the stern and holds. On the way back, we passed through the mess hall, where Jacek Kapczuk spotted and Marek Cacaj filmed a small bell on the floor. It is not a typical ship’s bell, but rather one that summons the crew to meals. Nevertheless, it made our hearts beat faster. – Baltictech group reports
The Baltictech group also reported that the bell remained out of place after the photographs were taken. According to the announcement, in the near future members of the team will make available more photos from the inventory of the “Baltic Titanic”.
